Sweet and perfumed, with additional aromas of bacon and baking spice. The palate is warm, chunky and jam-packed with plum fruit and tasty spice. The tail end is meaty and toasty, with some chocolate notes adding richness.

Fresh and bright, with black cherry and dusky herb flavors on a supple frame.

Clean black cherry flavors balance the tight, chalky tannins of this wine; to pair with steak.

The Koonunga Hill Cabernet Merlot has successfully built upon this tradition, offering Cabernets up-front dark fruit flavour and length, while Merlots juicy plum fruit fills out the mid-palate to create a seamless wine from start to finish.Koonunga Hill Cabernet Merlot is defined by its full-flavoured style with excellent fruit and approachability. The wine makes moderate use of oak maturation to add complexity while remaining in balance with the wines fresh fruit flavours. - Winery

A full bodied, fruit-driven wine, this predominately Cabernet Sauvignon is intermingled with Merlot for an immediate consumption experience. It is a food-friendly wine found in fine dining restaurants across the United States. Its nose offers up Bing cherry and plum nuances, with flavors displaying a structured Cabernet Sauvignon backbone with jammy characteristic. The wine team has over 30 years of making this wine and continues to show award-winning consistency with it. Drink it with grilled lamb, gorgonzola cheese or sauteacute;ed duck breasts.
